Manchester United’s quicksilver winger Nani has used social networking website Twitter to show his pride at being named in the PFA Team of the Year, voted for by his peers.
Nani has been in irrepressible form for much of the current campaign and has mixed explosive shooting with his creative nature to both score and assist numerous goals for the current Premier League leaders.
“I’m very proud to be named to PFA Team of the Year” tweeted Nani.
“Being part of this great club brings great responsibility and great achievements.”
The former Sporting Lisbon man had voiced his displeasure recently at not being shortlisted for the PFA Player of the Year award, which was won by Tottenham Hotspur winger Gareth Bale, despite the Welshman not claiming anywhere near as many goals nor assists as the fleet-footed Portugese.
Also busy on their twitter today has been Nani’s United team-mate Michael Owen, who revealed not only who he voted for as his Player of the Year but also his opinion that the voting for the award takes place too early in the season.
The former Liverpool and Real Madrid striker said: “I voted for Nasri (Samir, the flamboyant Arsenal midfielder) as player of the first 6 months year and Wiltshire (Jack Wilshere, the Arsenal and England midfielder) young player of the year. We definitely vote too early.”
